Concepts and activities for children between 3 and 6 years old
The first collection consists of 11 chapters dealing with independent and correlated topics in the context of the holistic integrated approach for early childhood care and development. Each chapter starts with a definition of theoretical concepts related to the topic of the chapter. The definition is followed by a translation of these concepts into learning objectives to be achieved by the teacher with the children through activities. The suggested activities in every chapter are samples that serve as a guide for the teacher and that can be modified – if need be – in order to fit the particularity of the environment, the age group, as well as the availability of resources and materials.
